"Arrested Development" Is Dead

Variety reports that the show's creator Mitch Hurwitz has put the kibosh on bringing the series back via Showtime. The main reason? Money, apparently. Hurwitz says he'd be glad to make a feature film, so maybe we haven't seen the last of the Bluths. Frankly, with the vast majority of good shows continuing long after their sell-by date, any show that maintains its quality for three years and then calls it a day is nothing to be mourned, especially for a sitcom. Three years for I'll Fly Away or Arrested Development or Once & Again? Wonderful. One year for Freaks & Geeks? Now that's a crime.

This is the funniest show currently on television. All you need to enjoy this show is an appreciation for high-quality acting and incredibly hilarious writing. Jason Bateman as Michael Bluth is perfect.
